“I wanted to thank the Foundation and everyone who was involved in innovating, organizing, and funding the 2013 CCH student scholarship.  Overall, the whole weekend was an incredible experience, and I appreciate all of your efforts to involve  the students.  Coming into CCH, I admit, I was a bit nervous; it was my first professional conference, first time in DC, not to mention first time being on the hill talking to congressmen.  However, beginning at the first Foundation board meeting and throughout the conference I felt nothing but welcomed and respected by everyone, and I appreciate that.
I truly got a lot out of this conference.  Not only was I given the opportunity to meet, network, and ask questions to many IACP members, but I was able to further my learning on current compounding regulatory issues and actually experience the legislative process first hand.  Not to mention I even got to volunteer at the best pharmacy 70's disco themed event of the year!  But in all seriousness, I really got a lot out of this conference and wish to thank every one of you.”
